Did it work? Check out the video . . .

Suffice to say, I am very pleased with the results. Is this faster than push mowing the lawn? I have to get more accurate measurements to quantify this but here are a few observations:

  1. Against a pure head to head race of walking the mower and riding the mower, the riding will win.
  2. Riding the mower incurs more overlap, so it depends on your mowing route and biking accuracy to minimize overlap. Walking is much more precise in prevent overlap.
  3. On a hill, I was significantly faster biking. I could not get the leverage pushing the mower uphill. Biking up hill, was just like cranking up a normal hill on a bike-albeit with more drag.

Stay tuned for quantifiable results!
